ALPA calls for a strike vote at United Continental Holdings

Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), representing the 12,000 pilots of Continental Airlines and United Airlines of United Continental Holdings (Chicago), has called for a strike vote by its members after failing to come to an agreement with management on a single contract for the pilots after two years of negotiations.

Management states it is making progress in the negotiations and any strike vote will not alter the negotiations. The opposite is likely, a call for a strike will probably result in a final settlement.

Reminder to those wanting to merge companies; make sure you have the labor contracts in order before any merger!

Like US Airways, Continental Airlines and United Airlines are in reality still two separate airlines with two pilot contract groups even though the companies have “merged” under the United Continental Holdings name and the Continental brand with the United name.
